CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Forty-Nine/Line Four


Nine in the fourth place means:
Remorse disappears. Men believe him.
Changing the form of government brings good fortune.

Storming the Bastille 14 July 1789


Radical changes require adequate authority. A man must have inner strength as well as influential position. What he does must correspond with a higher truth and must not spring from arbitrary or petty motives; then it brings great good fortune. If a revolution is not founded on such inner truth, the results are bad, and it has no success. For in the end men will support only those undertakings which they feel instinctively to be just.
